I left nearly 7 years ago and was last there in '03, I've heard from friends that I wouldn't even recognize the place. Hoping to get down there again this month. It's been WAY too long. It'll be a short trip, if I can make it all , but it would be fun to meet up with some fellow JK owners while there. I see gcg is also in the area. If/when this trip happens, I'll let you know. Maybe we could visit for a bit?
Long term plan: I've got a friend that lives a little south of here... ahem... a certain presidential candidate *cough: Rupedog* along with some of the So. OR folks I know of and explore the Sierras a little.
BTW, checked your Moab video... One word: AWESOME!!! A place on my list to go to, but haven't been yet.
